A SPAGHETTI HANDJOB BY HENRIK VIBSKOV

My Future Ex-Boyfriend

The Spaghetti Handjob

Danish designer Henrik Vibskov is well known for his artistic ways of presenting his collections, last night he showed his AW 14 during Copenhagen Fashion Week. 

With “The Spaghetti Handjob”, Henrik Vibskov wants to give us his wicked view on the relationship between order and disorder. He has found influences in natural elements as anthills and beehives, that at first seem chaotic but after a closer look you will discover the complex infrastructure that exist’s in there. And as well

“The contrast of neat, straight, uncooked spaghetti and the utter randomness that is created when it is cooked. The unimaginable scale of icebergs, glaciers and mountains, and man’s attempt to conquer them”

It’s quite a diverse range of influences, and I really wonder what is going on in there. Whatever it is, he manages to execute it, it’s always a great show. He is in the absolute fine line between art and fashion. You might wonder as I do; how and where is he searching and finding these ideas, I don’t know, but he tend to turn the most banal ideas into a wearable and sustainable collection. And not only creating a collection, but always a mesmerising show installation to accompany it. This time; long spaghetti bands rotating on huge poles and models walking on a long bed of stretched elastic bands, as if being churned up in a consumer food mixer from a kitchen of the 1970s.

The collection:

Layers of fabrics, each individual piece has a significant role and a different purpose. Twisting cuts and patterns following in fine line with the body contours. Baggy trousers giving a more relaxed look to the classic suit, combined with a series of hand crafted knits have been embroidered to create a 3D look using old-fashioned rug hooking techniques. Colour as orange, curry, red and mint mixed up with black and white to give it a contrast. The iceberg influences are seen on a couple well constructed cut and fold pieces, reminding us not only of the cold weather outside but the icebergs and snow topped mountains. The organised chaos of the beehives and anthills is seen throughout the collection, the chaos is well structured and well put together into one cohesive collection,

This season Vibskov has been working in co-operation with a non-profit organisation in India to produce khadi cotton, which is manufactured by hand by unemployed women in rural areas using traditional techniques. The cotton is processed without the use of electricity, and dyed using vegetable dyes, before being printed using hand-carved wood blocks.
